“Cusco is undoubtedly one of the most important historic sites and tourist destinations in Latin America” said Tom Potter, senior vice president, Latin America and the Caribbean for Hilton Worldwide. “As our first hotel in the area, Hilton Garden Inn Cusco is a great addition to our portfolio and an example of our commitment to grow our presence throughout key markets in South America.”

Because of its antiquity and importance, the city center retains many colonial buildings, plazas, streets and churches of pre-Columbian times. Cusco also serves as the gateway to some of the most storied archaeological sites in Latin America including Machu Picchu, which can be reached on foot by the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or by train, and the Sacred Valley.
